HANDGUN AMMO
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO BUY THE RIGHT HANDGUN AMMUNITION?
  • Buying the correct ammunition for your handgun can have an effect on the pistol's ability to function at the range and in a self-defense situation. It's critical to find an ammo manufacturer that is compatible with your pistol. You can do this by buying a couple different boxes of ammo and testing it at the range, which will give you insights into which ammo cycles well, which ammo cycles cleanly, and most importantly which ammo you can trust in a self-defense situation.
WHAT POSITIVE EFFECTS CAN THE RIGHT AMMUNITION HAVE ON YOUR PISTOL?
  • Shooting the proper round out of your pistol can decrease the chance of any misfires or jams, increase the pistols accuracy, and keep remaining bullet residue to a minimum. Purchasing the right ammunition for your firearm is just as important as purchasing the firearm itself. The right ammo will give you the best possible experience and allow you to feel confident in your pistols ability to function and perform in a variety of different scenarios that can occur in everyday life.
WHICH MANUFACTURER PRODUCES THE BEST HANDGUN AMMO?
  • Our customers seem to like Blazer Brass ammunition for the range because it runs clean, cycles well, and is very affordable. The go to self-defense ammo appears to be the Elite Performance Hollow Point round manufactured by Sig Sauer. This ammo is currently being used by a large number of the FBI agencies in America and is very affordable running at 21.99 a box.

RIFLE AMMO

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO BUY THE RIGHT RIFLE AMMUNITION?
  • Bullet ballistics are critical when you're trying to set up a rifle for hunting or target shooting. The weight and pressure of the round will affect the speed and accuracy of the bullet. Most shooters find that it's important to use a heavier bullet for hunting, which gives them a deeper shot. Target shooters usually like a lighter bullet that has more pressure-packed behind the cartridge, which means more speed and distance out of the bullet. At the end of the day, all the ammo manufacturers that we carry will get the job done, but finding the best ammo for your rifle will come down to your personal preference 
WHAT POSITIVE EFFECTS CAN THE RIGHT AMMUNITION HAVE ON YOUR RIFLE?
  • Running the correct ammunition through your rifle can be the difference between 1/2in groupings at 400 yards or 1/4in groupings at 400 yards. Whether you are target shooting or hunting, finding a round that you and your rifle are comfortable with will make life much easier when it is time take the shot.

SHOTGUN AMMO

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO BUY THE RIGHT SHOTGUN AMMUNITION?
  • The right shotgun ammo is a critical component to the performance of your firearm. The shot or slug you are using in your shotgun will effect 2 critical components, which is bb spread and distance.
WHAT POSITIVE EFFECTS CAN THE RIGHT AMMUNITION HAVE ON YOUR SHOTGUN?
  • The correct shotgun ammo can help you be more successful in your preferred shooting application. For example, if you are shooting trap and skeet it is important to buy ammunition that is 7 or 8 shot, which means there are a lot of bb's packed into the shell; this gives you a better chance at hitting the clay pigeon. If you are hunting for birds you will want to look into getting ammunition that is 3 or 4 shot, which will give you less bb's at a bigger size. This will do less damage to the animal and add more distance to your effective kill zone.
WHICH MANUFACTURER PRODUCES THE BEST SHOTGUN AMMO?
  • A popular hunting shell for our customers is made by Estate. This ammo is very popular because it's inexpensive and it is available in a large variety of gauges and shot patterns. If you are looking for home defense ammo the most popular stuff seems to be anything that is 7 or 8 shot and the new Aguila mini shells. These shells allow the shotgun user to fit about twice as many rounds in the magazine tube because the Aguila mini shells is 1 and 3/4 inches long.
